I was wondering if any of you have ever had, or do have, anything like this ever happen to you?

Sounds like you're an empath, which is a person who has almost like a psychic ability to "read" other person's emotions. Here are some websites that might help you a bit to understand what is going on:

I've heard inner voices speaking to me, and voices from outside myself, but I've always seen the inner voices as myself and the outer voices as my deities. But with you it might be different, since you have unique abilities, if you are indeed an empath.

Not just an empath, but maybe clairaudiant as well since you are hearing messages, not just sensing emotions. I am very strongly influenced by other people's emotions, but I don't "hear" words coming from others. It's more like I can't always tell my emotions from other people's. It is absolute torture for me to be in the middle of an argument between two people because I can sometimes empathize with both sides!


If you find yourself overwhelmed by other people's emotions, you may want to learn to "shield" yourself with either a mental/psychic wall or a talisman. I also once read that strong empaths tend to stand around with their arms crossed over their chests because this acts as a barrier between other people and your heart chakra. Guess who does that all the time? ME!

Thank you both so much for giving me some insight into what has been going on with me.
